My command line for converting to mp4 - 

ffmpeg -f alsa -ac 2 -i pulse -f x11grab -r 30 -s 1024x768 -i :0.0 -acodec pcm_s16le -vcodec libx264 -preset ultrafast -crf 0 -threads 0 video-output/screen-capture-output.mkv

I used SOA-P and EDS from Red Hat and added the server to the project.  One note when going through the tutorial that if a managed connection error occurs then go into the ds.xml that is deployed to the app server and add the username and password in order to preview the data.
